    This bird is up for adoption at our local shelter. They do not know what sex or breed,was thinking about adopting it. I cannot have a rooster tho so was wondering if anybody could tell me what it is.

    It's a rooster-not sure of breed. It has a rose comb, but is not a Wyandotte with those slate legs. Could be a mix.

    Cockerel. Probably a Wyandotte/OEG mix.

    He's a cockerel. I'd guess that he has some Old English Game and Wyandotte in him. Pretty bird!

    That's a mix cockerel. Not sure what it's mixed with, it's always hard to tell.

    It's too bad you don't have more pics. I'd love to see if he has white ears (which would make him a Rosecomb). At the very least, I'd say he is part rosecomb bantam.

    Do you think his crop should be so big ?

    Maybe he's just had a big meal. When my hens stuff themselves they have enormous crops too!
